I'd have loved to have discovered this book during my own paediatric rotation and exams! It's got lots of colourful illustrations and is really interesting and easy to read. It's a great text to use both as an introduction to paediatrics, as well as a brilliant revision guide. Definitely recommended to anyone trying to get to grips with the basics of paediatrics!!'
